Mrs. Lindsay Gets Ready For TK!

'Twas the night before TK...
When all through the school,
The work's on the table,
These hats look so cool...
Work is on the tables... 1st day star hats.
 The centers are ready...
Keyboard with headset & listening center.
Bunny's in his seat...
Library chairs
 The Discovery Center looks kinda neat,
Discovery Center
 The light on the desk of this cute TK room,
Will light up the faces around the classroom,
My desk

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear?
But Clifford the dog...
Clifford will stay in our pet shop until we need it for our chickens.
 And a cute, cuddly bear!
A soft bear and tissues just in case we have criers.

Home center labeled.
With a little, old playhouse so charming and sweet,
I knew in a moment we could cook up a treat...

With the dress-up outfits,
the children all played...
Bookcase on its side makes a closet.
 And later they stopped,
To make lemonade...
Our lemonade stand
The message was written,
On the board with care...
Lined dry erase contact paper on an easel and
a magnetic cork board.
 And the rules at the front,
Told us all to beware....
Front table
 The new ten frame numbers look like Common Core,
And the new Splash letters left us begging for more....
The money pig helps us to count each school day,
And the abacus shows us in a different way...

And the testing file is all ready to go,
It tells me what each child does know...
Another dish rack for testing files.
Then the last thing I did was to make this cute sign,
I'm exhausted, wiped out, now please bring me some wine!
Look through the frame and say, "Cheese!"
Please visit our TPT store and have fun setting up your classroom!
Wish me luck on my first day of TK.  :o)

  4. I SO want to be your student- I'd head right to the Discovery Center!! Looks absolutely amazing! Thanks so much for sharing on Discover and Explore this week!

  5. Thank you for your kind words. The Discovery Center is one of their favorites. :) I put out a lot of things for them to explore there today: a sea star, tree bark, a rock, a pine cone, and a twig. They weighed them, measured them, and looked at them with a magnifying glass. :)

  6. What a wonderful classroom! I would love for you to link this to my Back to School Traditions link!
